How to Play the essential blues turnaround on electric guitar
If you are going to play the blues guitar you better have this turnaround lick in your bag of tricks. If not, it's time to go into the woodshed!
Check out this blues guitar lesson from 100 Blues Licks.
If you are going to play the blues, there are a few standard licks you have to know, and this is one of them. You've heard this turnaround a million times. Go to a blues gig without this one in your bag of tricks and people are going to look at you funny.
Hell, a lot of people might look at you funny anyway, but don't worry about them. Just flash them a smile and say it with your guitar.
Of all the blues turnarounds this is probably the most standard, recognizable lick of them all. Don't even imagine "Sweet Home Chicago" without it. It's not exactly what Robert Johnson played, but it's close enough.
